A two-stop podcast this week, with the intro done stood in a field.  A beautiful couple of days in Langdale with friends was just the ticket.  Here’s what our view looked like:



This week I reflect on the tragic recent deaths in the public eye, and I take a personal look at an article which made me think about my relationship with medication. No spoilers but it made me really annoyed.

I’m still finding my feet with the podcast and this episode comes across as a bit of a stream of consciousness, but it is intended to open debate with the ultimate aim of talking more.

Lots of links, take a look below to follow them and draw your own conclusions; as I say in this episode these are my opinions and may not be anyone else’s. And I am happy to have my mind changed with further research (y’know, science).

If you need to talk to the Samaritans  or Blurt Foundation these are the links.
